Sophistication in Washington's West End

268 Rooms / 32 Suites

This West End hotel is Ritz-Carlton at its finest: sophisticated, traditional décor; attentive service; comfortable rooms; and a great location. The wood-paneled lobby is decorated with muted canvas paintings, fresh flowers, elegant chandeliers and parlor-style furniture. Walk through The Lobby Lounge — you’ll find a cocktail hour here daily from 5 to 9 p.m. with wines by the glass and cheese galore — to get to Westend Bistro and its delicious modern-American fare. Rooms, which are large by Washington standards, feature down duvets, Frette linens and fully stocked minibars with champagne, wine, liquor, sodas and sweet and savory snacks. In the bathrooms, you’ll find separate showers and soaking tubs; gilded over-the-sink mirrors; marble countertops and tile; and Asprey bath products.
